Wha Wha

I watched the holiday television special - A Charlie Brown Christmas - last night. In particular, I really enjoy listening to the teacher say wha wha, wha wha. I recognize that adults only speak wha wha in the Charlie Brown comic world. Nonetheless, I understand that she is saying Yard Safety, Yard Safety. Nonetheless, there are many people who hear blah blah, blah blah with regards to yard safety. Blah is a word that is sometimes used as an expression for words or feelings where the specifics are not considered important to the speaker or writer. Blah, blah, blah, blah is often used to show irritation towards someone who speaks monotonously or on a tedious topic. Sometimes people say "blah blah blah blah blah" to represent their monotonous attitude. It is a shame that many people do not care about yard safety awareness until somebody gets hurts. Think before you cut. It hurts. Be yard safe! Wha Wha not Blah Blah! Think yard safety!

Wha Wha, Wha Wha and Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas!

Happy Hanukkah

Happy Hanukkah! This year Hanukkah falls on the secular calendar December 2-10, 2018.

Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights or Festival of Rededication, is an eight-day Jewish holiday that starts on the 25th day of Kislev, which may be in December, late November, or, while very rare in occasion, early January (as was the case for the Hanukkah of 2005–2006).

The holiday was called Hanukkah meaning "dedication" because it marks the re-dedication of the Temple after its desecration under Antiochus IV. Spiritually, Hanukkah commemorates the Miracle of the Oil. According to the Talmud, at the re-dedication of the Temple in Jerusalem following the victory of the Maccabees over the Seleucid Empire, there was only enough consecrated olive oil to fuel the eternal flame in the Temple for one day. Miraculously, the oil burned for eight days - which was the length of time it took to press, prepare and consecrate new oil.

Likewise, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man is dedicated to Yard Safety Awareness. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man forges on with hopes that individuals will spread the yard safety message. It would be great if some people would buy some Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man merchandise and promote yard safety awareness. It would be another miracle.

Yard Footwear and Apparel

Richard Mudrinich, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man™, is the founder and inventor of the first-of-its-kind yard safety footwear and gear, including the Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man Yard Safety Footwear™. "I am the first yard safety super hero in the history of the world. Furthermore, I am the first person in the world to invent garden grass landscaping lawn mowing turf yard safety footwear specifically targeted for the landscaping experience. I conceived these ideas, especially the yard safety footwear, after chopping-off part of my left foot with a walk-behind power push lawn mower while cutting the grass,” shares Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man.

“I was inspired to invent my yard safety footwear immediately after my yard accident. While in the hospital recovering from several surgeries as a result of my severe lawn mower accident, I made a life-commitment (divine inspiration) to yard safety awareness. In the hospital bed, I conceived the concept of the first-of-its-kind yard safety footwear and gear in order to prevent yard accidents from happening to other people and animals. Since I cut-off part of my left foot, I focused initially on designing and developing the Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man Yard Safety Footwear™. My focus then expanded to design Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man Yard Safety Gear™ to protect other parts of the body. These personal protective equipment items are yard safety insurance products and promote preventive medicine as well. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man™ will donate to educational and charitable purposes,” shares Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man.

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man™ has received a divine direction (patent) from God to continue to promote the concept of yard safety footwear. He recognizes that other individuals have taken his idea as their own. He wishes that those individuals would acknowledge that Richard Mudrinich (Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man™) is the inventor of yard safety footwear. Furthermore, there are some individuals who exhibited unethical, unprofessional, and maybe illegal behavior with regards to private discussions, especially involving some federal (government officials, small business development centers, etc.), federal affiliated (SCORE), commercial organizations (patent attorneys), non-profit organizations (hospitals, business development organizations, etc.) that exist to help an entrepreneur development his idea into a business, including protecting intellectual property. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man™ cautions entrepreneurs about approaching these organizations, especially with regards to intellectual property. In essence, the entrepreneur feeds these organizations ideas that are then distributed and exploited beyond the entrepreneur. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man™ was exploited by organizations established to help (not exploit) entrepreneurs. Indeed, there are now several new entrants into the yard safety footwear arena. Also, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man™ is the source of other small and large corporations entering the yard safety footwear business. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man™ is the source of new footwear applications by recent entrants into the lawn safety footwear market, including existing safety footwear. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man™ is disappointed in these individuals and organizations, especially those acknowledging that Richard Mudrinich is the father and inventor of garden grass landscaping lawn mowing turf yard safety footwear. Richard Mudrinich wants some credit and compensation for acting as the catalyst of a new niche yard safety marketplace. "Throw the yard safety super hero a bone," requests Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man.

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man™ is a caped crusader and yard safety super hero working tirelessly to prevent lawn mower accidents and to promote yard safety. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man™ is a renaissance yard man utilizing various art forms to communicate his safety message. “I want to educate and entertain the general public regarding the importance of yard safety. Lawn mower accidents happen in a split-second, often resulting in life-altering outcomes that sometimes include amputation. I learned this from first-hand experience when I amputated part of my left foot while cutting the grass,” shares Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man™. “Wear a Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man T-shirt™ to pass along the yard safety message so that people and animals do not get hurt. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man™ is here today so that yard accidents go away.”

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man™ is a yard safety awareness conduit for the betterment of mankind. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man™ wants to create awareness regarding the frequency and severity of lawn mower accidents and to promote preventive measures to rescue individuals and families from the dreaded experience associated with yard accidents. Each year, there are about 100,000 lawn mower accidents. Furthermore, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that hospital emergency rooms treat more than 400,000 outdoor garden-tool-related accidents each year. Estimates from past statistics indicate that yardwork accidents fatally injure more than 3,000 people. According to Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man, "Think before you cut. It hurts. I encourage you to heed the outdoor power equipment safety precautions and to promote yard safety!"

Richard Mudrinich, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man™, has been the primary caregiver of his mom (the real hero) for over the past 15 years, so it has been difficult to advance his various social entrepreneurial endeavors, given the demands associated with caring for his mom.  There have been several companies who have pursued several of his ideas.  For instance, even on the day that his mom died, a start-up company launched a kickstarter campaign to pursue a yard footwear and apparel products business.  Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man™ shares, "I feel compelled to pursue my God-given destiny.  I recognize that God is control and will provide the resources to make it happen! I know that my mom is in Heaven and she is encouraging me to finally execute my entrepreneurial vision and cherish the journey - IN JESUS' NAME. AMEN!" 

Be yard safe! Think before you cut. It hurts!

Veterans Day

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man observes Veterans Day. I have never served in the military during wartime or peacetime.  However, I am proud to have had the opportunity to work on a few military projects as a civilian.  Today, I am trying to serve America and the world as a yard safety super hero.  Unlike true veterans who are true heroes, I am viewed as an idiot.

Veterans Day is an American holiday for honoring living war veterans. It is both a federal holiday and a state holiday in all states. The holiday has been observed annually on November 11 - first as Armistice Day, later as Veterans Day. The day has since evolved as a time for honoring living veterans who have served in the military during wartime or peacetime, partially to complement Memorial Day, which primarily honors the dead. There has been some discussion of whether a person's veteran status depends upon his/her retirement or discharge from any of the armed forces. However, the term applies to any that have honorably served their country or that have served in a war zone as directed by their superior officers or as directed by lawful orders given by their country.

Thank you to all those veterans who have served America in the military, so people like me have the freedom to be perceived as an irrelevant idiot. Please be a Yard Safety Crusader!

Halloween XV

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man will be dressing-up as himself again this Halloween. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man is a “caped crusader” working tirelessly to promote yard safety awareness and to rescue individuals from getting hurt.

Halloween affords yet another fun time to share the preventive yard safety message in another unique way.  As a show of support for yard safety awareness and a tribute to all those people who have gotten hurt, including severe amputations, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man encourages both children and adults to dress-up as yard safety super heroes - a Halloween costume with a social purpose. In essence, I want to blast my yard safety message to create awareness so that people do not get hurt. Halloween is a great way for everyone to play yard safety super hero for a day.

Furthermore, the Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man merchandise provides a year-round reminder of yard safety awareness.

Mulch Madness

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man has coined the phrase Mulch Madness. College basketball has March Madness. Fall Yard Work has Mulch Madness. Mulch Madness affords yet another fun time to share the preventive yard safety message in another unique way. Mulch Madness kicks-off with the First Day of Fall and runs throughout all of Autumn.

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man witnessed a leaf fall from a tree in his yard on the First Day of Fall. Now, there are several leaves on the ground in yards throughout the world. In the Fall, individuals often use their lawn mowers to mulch fallen leaves. The slippery leaves contribute to the increased risk of a lawn mower accident. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man cautions individuals to watch out for sticks and objects hidden by the leaves as well as slippery slopes. Furthermore, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man recommends that individuals wear personal protective equipment to improve yard safety.

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man echoes the recommendations of many landscaping experts that it is good for your yard to mulch the leaves. In essence, it is nature's way to recycle. Your yard is simply an extension of the natural process. Trees around your property draw nutrients and minerals from the soil, converting those elements into new leaves and branches. The mulching mower grass clippings (benefits of grasscycle) quickly decompose and provide nutrients to keep the lawn healthy. Moreover, the mulching mower blades can easily shred whole leaves into small pieces. The mulching mower is a food processor for worms that loosen and enrich the soil. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man reminds everyone to mulch the leaves - not any body parts!

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man is a renaissance yardman, utilizing various art forms to communicate his yard safety message. I want to educate and entertain everyone about the importance of yard safety. Lawn mower accidents happen in a split-second, often resulting in life-altering outcomes that sometimes include amputation. I learned this from first-hand experience when I amputated part of my left foot while cutting the grass. My life-changing lawn mower accident took place on the First Day of Fall 2003. I fell in the Fall that day. Nonetheless, I have become a leading yard safety advocate. I have made several major contributions to the Green Industry. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man strives to win the Nobel Prize!

Be yard safe! Think yard safety! Think before you cut. It hurts! Be a yard safety crusader!

Happy Birthday Rescue Rick

Birth of Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (Limerick)
By Richard Mudrinich

There once was a man
Who was a grass-cutting fan.
He cut off his big toe
Screaming oh no!
And hence was born Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man.

The birthday celebration of Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man Is today. On September 21, 2003, I had a serious lawn mower accident, resulting in the partial amputation of my left foot. My life changed on that day. I have been inspired to promote yard safety awareness.

I have created awareness regarding the frequency and severity of lawn mower accidents. I am the first yard safety super hero in the history of the world. Furthermore, I have been compelled to present some lawn mower safety measures with hopes to significantly minimize the occurrences and magnitudes of these costly, life-altering, mutilating, and painful events. I strive to find a cure for yard accidents.

Each year, there are over 100,000 lawn mower accidents. Furthermore, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that hospitals emergency rooms treat more than 400,000 outdoor garden-tool-related accidents each year. Estimates from past statistics indicate that yard work accidents fatally injure more than 3,000 people. In addition, the estimated medical, legal, insurance and disability costs and other expenses of these injuries are over a billion dollars each year. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man presents preventive measures to rescue (hence, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) - a real-life caped crusader for yard safety) individuals and families from going through the dreaded experience associated with lawn mower accidents. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man and the Yard Safety Crusaders promote the safe use of the entire spectrum of outdoor power equipment. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man has provided similar outreach to other individuals impacted by a yard accident.

Since the birth date of Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man on September 21, 2003, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man has achieved several accomplishments: yard safety awareness initiatives, products, programs, services, etc. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man has reached millions of individuals, families, and institutions all over the world. Furthermore, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man has made a positive impact on several individuals and industries related to yard safety - including some life-changing actions and events. I have inspired the entire green industry to rethink safety resulting in several new safety initiatives.  I am the first person to conceive and design yard footwear, resulting in several new products to market. However, I have learned first-hand that "no good deed goes unpunished." Nonetheless, I am very committed to yard safety! My life goal is to achieve zero yard accidents and to befriend other people who have experienced yard accidents. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man is here today so that yard accidents go away!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! HAPPY YARD SAFETY!

Back to School

It is Back to School time for millions of people.  I want to make sure that each child learns about yard safety awareness. Actually, I continue to promote Yard Safety Awareness since often times children cut grass to make some money or satisfy family chores. Furthermore, children are involved in about 25% of all yard accidents.

Yard Safety Awareness applies to everyone.  Therefore, I encourage communities and schools to offer Yard Safety Awareness educational programs as part of their education programs. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man is available to make special appearances to add some entertainment value to the educational experience.

I wish everyone a great and safe school year.  Think before you cut. It hurts. (tm)

Father's Day

DEAR HEAVENLY FATHER,

It is FATHER'S DAY. It is important for FATHERS around the world to teach their children about yard safety. HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!

I want to honor the many fathers around the world.  Also, I want to offer my condolences and sympathies to those individuals and families whose fathers have passed away.

In particular, I want to take a moment and reflect and pay tribute to my dad, Robert N. Mudrinich (December 22, 1930 - November 13, 1995). My dad died November 13, 1995. My dad was the greatest man that I have ever known. He was Christ-like in many ways, and he was very resourceful and patient. He reached out to those less fortunate as well as those more fortunate. He was self-taught on many levels. He was an innovative and inventive genius. My dad really was a super hero. Therefore, it is no wonder that I want to save the world from yard accidents. My dad would have been the biggest fan and ingenious supporter of the Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man yard safety advocacy. Now, my dad lives with Jesus; his body rests in Morefield Cemetery located in Hermitage, Pennsylvania. My dad was a saint. He would have worn a Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man T-Shirt around town with pride until it was threads. In many ways, I do not think that my dad would be surprised by my passion to reach out to other people. He would embrace Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man, while some others think I am just an idiot. I wish that he still lived on Earth. I miss my dad. I really loved my dad. He was a great man. Before I die, I want to ride a lawn mower across America and then continue around the world. I want to be buried in my Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man super hero costume.

In short, I want FATHERS to learn about yard safety. I want MOTHERS to learn about yard safety. I want FAMILIES to learn about yard safety. I want CHILDREN to ask their PARENTS about yard safety. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man is here today to promote yard safety awareness and rescue individuals, families, and institutions from yard accidents.

In addition, Richard Mudrinich is a father as well - a father and pioneer of various yard safety characters, products, and services. His nickname is Mud. Some people think that he is backwards, yet he is not Dum(b). He is Mud - Man of Unexplained Desire.

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (Richard T. Mudrinich) is the father and inventor of yard (garden grass grounds landscaping lawn mowing turf) safety footwear, including boots, galoshes, overshoes, and shoes. He is the father of yard safety educational concepts, tools, and venues, including apparel, artwork, coloring and activity books, comic books, games, media, software, etc.

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man has given birth to a family of characters to educate and entertain folks on his yard safety awareness message. It all started with Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man after Mud had a severe lawn mower accident that resulted in the partial amputation of his left foot. Next, Tripod the Dog become the faithful sidekick of Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man. Tripod has three legs after experiencing a yard accident as well. Furthermore, MowBoVatar was born as an ambassador to the technology communities and venues as part robot and part avatar programmed with the mission to broadcast the yard safety message. The Twin Blades were introduced to represent the economic, environmental, and humanitarian challenges that exist between commerce, health, and public interest with regards to the fragile balance of saving the people versus saving the company. Army Armadillo was born to highlight the need for personal protective equipment. Toxy Turfy advocates yard chemical safety. Shaky focuses on health and machine vibration concerns. Zilch is a number man who keeps count of yard accidents and dreams of the number zero when the goal of zero yard accidents is finally achieved. There is still work that needs to be done. Moreover, Mud is the father of Yard Safety Crusaders - a growing group of concerned citizens around the world who want to communicate the yard safety message.

In addition, Mud is a serial social adventurer and father of festive informative characters. While in college, Mud created Captain Junk Food and the Four Food Groups to promote healthy nutrition and a balanced diet.

Furthermore, Mud is Richard Mudrinich as well - probably the biggest most complex character of them all. Think. Dream. Think some more. Be whatever character you want to be. Be yourself first. Live.

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!

IN JESUS NAME, AMEN!

Memorial Day

Memorial Day 2018 is Monday, May 28th.

Memorial Day is an American holiday dedicated to the memory of all war dead. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) is grateful for all of the men and women who have served in the U. S. military to protect and defend their country and to promote freedom, so that I can dress as a yard safety super hero and promote yard safety awareness.  I recognize that freedom is not free.  Often times, American citizens extend the concept of honoring war dead to all dead. I want to take a moment of silence to remember family members, friends, and fellow Americans who have passed away. (SILENCE)

Also, I must remember the individuals who have died while grass cutting - killed by outdoor power equipment. (SILENCE) The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that there have been over 3,000 fatalities during the past 30 years. In recent years, there are still about 150 lawn mower fatalities each year. This is one reason that the Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) campaign exists. It is unfortunate that war sometimes results in loss of life while fighting for your country as a true patriot. Again, I want to thank all of the American soldiers who have served and are currently serving their country. Furthermore, it is really unfortunate to die from a fatal outdoor power equipment accident. Wake-up America! Indeed, you can die from cutting grass. Think before you cut. It can kill you. BE SAFE! (tm) I hope that you enjoy this Memorial Day Weekend because the WAR DEAD and the LAWN MOWER DEAD WILL NOT. Again, I am very grateful for the FALLEN WAR HEROES, and I recognize the LAWN MOWER DEAD.  I remember DECEASED FAMILY and FRIENDS.  I respect and honor all the lives of the DEAD.  THANK YOU! (SILENCE)

21 Lawn Mower Salute! (SILENCE)

Thank you for serving our country. Thank you for the memories! (CELEBRATE LIFE)

Mother's Day

I am grateful for my mom. My mom, Helen Mudrinich, has influenced Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man. She has a long history of reaching out to help other people. She seems to always put other people before herself in a Christ-like fashion. Also, my mom has really cared for Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man. She really helped me immediately after my lawn mower accident. It was a very difficult and challenging time for several reasons. My mom took care of me. Likewise, I have inherited a will to rescue people from having a yard accident. If not for my mom, the many yard safety innovations that Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man has introduced to the world would have never happened. My mom is in Heaven now.  Thanks for the memories and teachings!

Also, I want to suggest to all mothers the importance of adding yard safety to the skills and tools that you give and teach your children. Each year, children represent about 20% of all people who get hurt from outdoor power equipment related accidents. Furthermore, I encourage all mothers to give their children the Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man yard safety tips, to become better prepared and more knowledgeable about using outdoor power equipment. I recognize that motherhood introduces considerable responsibility. Please visit the Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man website http://www.rescuerick.com to learn more about yard safety. I do not want your baby to get hurt.

Babette

I developed a passion for disabled and challenged persons at a young age. As a child, I had a dog named Babette who developed a condition called "floating kneecaps." In essence, her kneecaps would slip out of place, and she would drag her legs or walk only on her front paws. Furthermore, Babette had a very sweet personality. She loved everyone. Furthermore, I reached out to Babette recognizing some of her physical limitations and admiring her many positive characteristics. Unfortunately, Babette was killed by a car during a visit by one of my relatives who let Babette out to get some fresh-air. I did not learn about this until it was too late. It was a very sad day because Babette embodied a spirit of innocence and love for all animals and people. Babette was a wonderful little doggy.

After my lawn mower accident, I had a series of surgeries to care for the partial amputation of left foot. Often times, I thought about my little brave doggy Babette who made such a profound impact on everyone who met her. I gained some inspiration and strength from that little doggy.

In the spirit of Babette, I have developed a passion for disabled persons and disabled animals. Actually, I am now a disabled person. Citizen Kane had Rosebud. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man had Babette.

Happy Easter

He is Risen! Happy Easter!

Easter is the most important religious holiday of the Christian liturgical year, observed between late March and late April to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, which Christians believe occurred after his death by crucifixion. Christ is Risen!

I want to live in Heaven with Jesus when I die. In the meantime, I do not want to sin, and I want to promote yard safety awareness.

Good Friday

Good Friday is a holy day celebrated by Christians on the Friday before Easter. It commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus at Calvary.

Special prayer services are often held on this day with readings from the Gospel accounts of the events leading up to the crucifixion. Mainstream Christian churches view Christ's crucifixion as a voluntary and vicarious act, and one by which, along with resurrection on the third day, death itself was conquered.

Jesus was crucified so that I (we) would be forgiven for all of my (our) sins. He was resurrected so that I (we) can live again in Heaven. Good Friday is Great God Friday for Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man. Jesus was and is God's plan. Good Friday is Love. Easter Day is Joy. Thank you Jesus.

Good Friday is God Friday. We are all part of God's plan. God knows all. God plans all. God rules all. God rules Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man is part of His plan.

Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday is the Thursday of Holy Week (the Thursday before Easter). It was the day on which Jesus celebrated the Passover with his disciples, sharing a meal with them which we call the Last Supper.

In those days it was usual for a servant to wash the guests feet on arrival. On this occasion there was no servant present and none of the disciples volunteered to do the menial task. Instead, Jesus got up and washed his disciples feet, giving them an object lesson in humility and service. In some churches priests carry out a ceremonial washing of the feet of twelve men on Maundy Thursday as a commemoration of Christ's act.

It would be great to have Jesus wash my feet. I might even be surprised to be blessed with a miracle - a new big toe. Thank you Jesus for the Atonement. Jesus suffered horribly and died on the cross. Thank you for the forgiveness and repair of my (our) sins.

Spring is in the air, and yard safety is near. Actually, safety never takes a day off. Everyday is yard safety day. Nonetheless, I want to have a celebration periodically to promote a community effort. Therefore, I strive to create yard safety awareness. I do not want anybody to get hurt or die.

Saint Patrick

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man pays tribute to Saint Patrick. Saint Patrick provides great inspiration toward my yard safety awareness campaign. Indeed, grass is green. The green in the Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man color scheme (red, yellow, and green) represents my appreciation for nature and my faith in advancing yard safety awareness on behalf of God. I appreciate the many efforts and contributions of Saint Patrick. I share below a few excerpts about Saint Patrick - a great man who delivered divine works on behalf of God (Source: Wikipedia).

Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, was born, probably in Roman Britain, about AD 385, and was originally called Maewyn. At the age of 16, he was sold into slavery by a group of Irish marauders that raided his village. Having been a pagan before, he became closer to Christianity during his captivity. He escaped from slavery after six years and went to Gaul where he studied in the monastery under St. Germain, bishop of Auxerre for a period of twelve years. During his training he became aware that his calling was to convert the pagans to Christianity. He wished to return to Ireland and to convert the native pagans to Christianity, but his superiors instead appointed St. Palladius. However, two years later Palladius transferred to Scotland. Patrick, having adopted that Christian name earlier, was then appointed as second bishop to Ireland. Patrick was quite successful at winning converts which upset the Celtic Druids. Patrick was arrested several times, but escaped each time. He traveled throughout Ireland, establishing monasteries across the country. He also set up schools and churches which would aid him in his conversion of the Irish country to Christianity. His mission in Ireland lasted for thirty years. After that time, Patrick retired to County Down. He died on March 17 in AD 461. That day has been commemorated as St. Patrick's Day ever since.

Much Irish folklore surrounds St. Patrick's Day. Some of this lore includes the belief that Patrick raised people from the dead. He also is said to have given a sermon from a hilltop that drove all the snakes from Ireland, although paleontologists have pointed out that no snakes were ever native to Ireland. (In response, some scholars say the snake story was a metaphor for the conversion of the pagans.) Though originally a Catholic holy day, St. Patrick's Day has evolved into more of a secular holiday.

One traditional icon of the day is the shamrock. This stems from a more bona fide Irish tale that tells how Patrick used the three-leafed shamrock to explain the Trinity. He used it in his sermons to represent how the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit could all exist as separate elements of the same entity. His followers adopted the custom of wearing a shamrock on his feast day.

The St. Patrick's Day custom came to America in 1737, the first year St. Patrick's Day was publicly celebrated, in Boston, Massachusetts. Today, people celebrate the day with parades, wearing green, and drinking beer.
